    I just got confused, a book said to store eggs for hatching pointy side up, but i thought it was pointy side down? Which is it or doesn't it matter? The air is in the round part of the egg i thought.

    the air pocket is in the rounded end so the pointy side goes down to keep it that way just like you said
